At the time you sell your car, you'll need to:
- Sign over the title to the new owner in front of a notary public.
- Though not mandatory, create a bill of sale listing the purchase price and terms of the car sale.
Officials from the Montana Department of Revenue highly recommend making copies of the completed title and bill of sale as a means of protecting yourself. And don't forget to remove the vehicle's plates.
If you're selling a car to which you've lost the title, you should apply for a duplicate title before initiating a sale.
Though a bill of sale is not required, it's in your best interest to create one for your records. You can easily download one from our Bill of Sale page.
